Alex Trebek has died after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. The 80 year old Jeopardy host was surrounded by family and friends as he passed away early yesterday morning. Trebek first revealed his diagnosis to fans in March 2019 and continued to work as he received treatments for cancer, maintaining positive attitude throughout. Remembrances from musicians and celebs of the TV personality began pouring into social media shortly after his death was announced. Among them was John Legend, Charlie Puth, Ryan Reynolds, Josh Gad and so many more.
My heart is heavy hearing of Alex Trebek’s passing. The soundtrack of my life was hearing his voice every night at 7pm. There will never be a host quite like him ever again. God bless him and his family. And may his legacy forever live on. (Insert final Jeopardy music here.) pic.twitter.com/Qz61Bkamet

I was obsessed with Jeopardy as a nerdy kid growing up in Ohio. I’ve loved and revered Alex Trebek since I can remember. What an iconic career. RIP Alex Trebek.

Alex Trebek was kind enough to film a cameo for our film Free Guy last year despite his battle. He was gracious and funny. In addition to being curious, stalwart, generous, reassuring and of course, Canadian. We love you, Alex. And always will.

Liam Payne has called out the Daily Mail for a misleading headline about why he wasn’t able to see his 3 year old son. The headline read that Liam said it’s not unusual for me to be in and out of his life and that he and ex Cheryl Cole agreed he should take some time away from son Bear. Payne said usually I let these things slide but this is completely out on context. I couldn’t see my son because of the worldwide pandemic that is happening not because I had anything wrong with me like this headline hints at. Not cool Daily Mail not cool at all. Read what else Liam had to say here.
Remember going out to the bars with your friends and grabbing some late-night food? Yeah we don’t either. But Dua Lipa is here to remind you of the good ole days with her new Fever video. In the visual you can see her dancing through the empty streets while grabbing some munchies as fellow night owls break into a spontaneous groove all around her at the food truck. Check out the video:
